Male Lead:

Damn, it's locked.

Female Lead:

Don't worry.

takes hairpin that's holding up her indescribably perfect bun, despite having just jumped out of an airplane

puts hairpin in lock while Male Lead turns around with back to door frame -- gun in hand

guards come running down hallway

Male Lead:

Hey you better hurry up with that lock -- WE'VE GOT COMPANY

Female Lead:

I'm almost there, hold them off!

continues to randomly jiggle hairpin in lock hole

male lead shoots at guards, who have put furniture that doesn't belong in a hallway like full sectional couches up as blockades from the gunfire

Male Lead:

They're bringing in the big guns!!!

17 foot 4 man saunters down hallway in way too tight shirt, looking intensely constipated

music gets more intense

Female Lead:

and….got it! Come on {MALE LEAD}, let's go!

they both escape just as large man reaches door

Female Lead puts key in lock, turning slowly while music crescendos

Female Lead:

Got it!

some unexplainable ancient stone hinge technology that somehow still works centuries later opens by itself

Male Lead:

Let's go!

Main Villain somehow waiting inside for them, despite having no knowledge if they would show up or not, even (202212251415)
